What is E3 Collective?

E3 Collective is an initiative of VMMissions that invites followers of Jesus to participate in healthy and holistic short-term (a week or more) mission experiences. As the name “collective” suggests, these are team-based experiences.

Collectives focus on being, rather than simply doing, challenging a works-based approach to Christianity and re-orienting us to a gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered way of being and building the body of Christ across the boundaries of geography and culture. Collectives invite persons to embark on an intensive short-term team experience, encourage and be encouraged as the body of Christ in a host setting, and engage more deeply the work of the kingdom for a lifetime. This happens through up-front training; prayer, personal reflection and group processing while on location; and debriefing and sharing with others after you return.

SOE accreditedIn our efforts to build the best program possible, we have joined Standards of Excellence in Short-term Mission. Team leaders and participants, as well as host partners, are equipped and commit to 7 standards:

  • God-centeredness
  • Empowering partnerships
  • Mutual design
  • Comprehensive administration
  • Qualified leadership
  • Appropriate training
  • Thorough follow-through.

(Learn more about these standards on SOE’s website.)
